Wisconsin Democrats on Monday announced that they will begin officially collecting recall signatures on November 15. Democrats must collect 540,206 signatures before they can demand a recall of the controversial Governor responsible for destroying collective bargaining for state employees.
If successful a recall vote could be on the ballot before Spring.
Speaking on behalf of those involved in the recall effort the Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman said on Monday:
“It has become clearer than ever that the people of Wisconsin—the traditions and institutions of our great state—cannot endure any more of Scott Walker’s abuses.”
In true political fashion the state’s GOP chief said he will gladly compare Walker’s successes with the “failed policies of the past.”
If Scott Walker is recalled by Wisconsin voters it would be only the third time in US history that a gubernatorial recall was successful. The first successful recall occurred in 1921 when the socialist-leaning Governor Lynn Frazier was recalled, the second was Gray Davis of California in 2003, David was replaced by actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Do you believe that based on Scott Walker’s voting record the citizen’s of Wisconsin will successful vote to have him removed from office or will he serve out his full term before leaving office?
